When it comes to kids, these moms mean business.
Here’s something to look forward to this spring: Wee Chic Boutique in Green Spring Station now carries the Kate Spade Kids Collection of fun, flirty dresses and accessories, just in time for Easter and Passover! Wee Chic is the exclusive boutique retailer of Kate Spade Kids in the Baltimore metropolitan region.
It’s official: the totally charming shopping and dining awesomeness of The Avenue in Hampden is unabashedly spilling out through the neighborhood, particularly down Chestnut Ave. Several new businesses popped up this summer (including The Charmery and Bazaar), with more on the way (like the oh-so-hotly-anticipated Paulie Gee’s Pizzeria that should be coming any day). Only a week or so ago, Mono Azul, a new children’s boutique opened its doors on Chestnut—offering both new and gently used children’s clothing, for newborns to 10 year-olds.
Remember back when photos required film, and that film came in limited roles? When your phone wasn’t also your camera? Well, today’s kids don’t. Tots growing up today get way more time in front of the camera than those of us who grew up pre-digital. My nephews have been mugging for photos ever since they popped out of the womb: a trip to the farmer’s market, a moderately good sand castle, an ice-cream cone all over the face are all now Kodak moments. And why not? You’ve got the phone, the kid, and all the digital memory you could ever want. So what’s it all boil down to? Kids today are far more practiced models than we ever were. Sure, you may have been just as adorable, but did the camera love you?
Wee Chic Boutique—Baltimore’s hippest children’s clothing store—has long been wise to this phenomenon. They know that Baltimore’s kids are super-cool, super-cute, and also great in front of the camera. Wee Chic (located in Green Spring Station in Lutherville) believes kids are never too young to enjoy great style and self expression, which could be one reason they’ve won Best of Baltimore awards three years in a row. But carrying such an amazing selection of kids clothing (featuring favorite designers such as Desiguel, Tooby Doo, Splendid, and Tea Collection) requires equally amazing kids to model the stuff. And so, Wee Chic is announcing its fourth annual Little Characters Search.
